How wonderful does this sound? (from another region posted today):
You gather in the hall, you are given a sheet of paper to write a question on which you leave on your seat. Y 8 boys take groups of boys and parents on a tour of the school. The questions are gathered up. The head and SLT go through the questions. After a 40 minute tour, you gather back in the hall and the head answers all the questions asked. Of course, lots are the same so there were only about 6 questions asked, all worded differently. The head is very honest and open.
Imagine that? A special meeting for all children who have reached the pass mark to not only reassure them that they will definitely get a grammar place somewhere in county but to give them an extra tour of the school too. Plus a chance for their parents to ask anything they want to about the school before filling in their forms.
Again, I don't see it working too well here but it would be wonderful if it could.
